Core Tip The study determined the diagnostic accuracy of two-dimensional shear wave elastography (2D-SWE) for the non-invasive assessment of liver fibrosis in patients with autoimmune liver diseases (AILD) using liver biopsy as the reference standard. The characteristics of the diagnostic performance were determined for 114 patients with AILD. The areas under the receiver operating characteristic curves for significant fibrosis, severe fibrosis, and cirrhosis were 0.85, 0.85 and 0.86, respectively, and the optimal cut-off values were 9.7 kPa, 13.2 kPa and 16.3 kPa, respectively. 2D-SWE showed promising diagnostic performance in assessing liver fibrosis stages and ex­hibited high cut-off values in patients with AILD.
